A quick edit on some training footage-I was trying out the “audio” back on the Go Pro and some different angles and shots off using the ski pole mount. A lovely day to be out on the hill.
Finally enough snow to get out and enjoy winter!
I often seek out videos on You Tube and other sites as a way to preview and visualize the mountain I am about to climb. I study the route and land marks as well as what the climbers are wearing … Continue reading
The day is frantic with last minute things to do but this video came to my attention and I paused to watch it. I loved how Alastair Humphreys put into words and images, why we go (or at least why they … Continue reading
The gift of a late March snow storm is that is prompts one to stay home and attend to one’s packing chores. Marian and I spent much of today doing Greenland prep chores. I don’t know how I ever managed … Continue reading
Tangent Expeditions is providing the logistics and transportation for my upcoming Greenland expedition. This great video gives an introduction to how snowmobiles are opening up parts of Greenland to exploration as well as give some picture of the amazing views … Continue reading
One morning when I was training for a climb, a guy in a truck roared up and said, “do you want me to call you a tow truck?” I wasn’t quick enough that morning mentally because about half way up … Continue reading
I love this clip. It speaks volumes of what it is like to be on the precipice of a new experience, wanting to let go and let the skis ride, and the challenge of doing that. A brave nine year … Continue reading
Here’s an oldie but a goodie…it’s a video that Kenna Fair and I made after our 2003 trip down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. It’s a compilation of super eight film, video, and photographs. The first three minutes … Continue reading
What do you do after you’ve been cooped up too long because of a snow storm…go out and play in it, of course. An urban adventure all within walking reach of home, the first in a series of more to … Continue reading
The third in a series of “snow day” movies. Always fun to be out in a storm and see what the helmet cam can do. Today was climbing seven of the steepest hills in the downtown St. John’s.
Five days out from departure for Antarctica and you get a snow day…improvise! Building on last year’s snow day video, here’s the sequel! Here’s the original:
We chose counterclockwise. Opposite of how the commentary was laid out in the Lonely Planet guide, we elected to drive the ring road of Iceland the other way. After our climb of Hvannadalshnúkur, as we headed out Route One toward … Continue reading
Another beautiful spring day here in St. John’s allowed me to take my new Alpacka pack raft out for its first test paddle on Long Pond and inlet creek. Getting into the boat is like getting a hug and it … Continue reading
